The New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The lady, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that may be two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond on a daily basis. The boy, Salva, becomes probably the most “lost boys” of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they seek for their families and for a protected place to stick. Enduring each hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story is going directly to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.
